The main body of St Thomas' church, approached by a wide flight of brilliant-white steps, is now a museum, while the rooms at the back (and some shacks on the roof) are the Sao Tome Principe hotel. Our room, up its own flight of steps at the back of the building, was light and airy with views across gardens and the spires of St Paul's church to the distant sea. More...
